The Santa Catalina Fund

The Santa Catalina Fund is an essential revenue source for the School's annual operating budget. As is true at all independent schools, tuition income does not fully cover the cost of educating our students. That's why each year we rely on the generosity of the entire school community to support the Santa Catalina Fund. Your annual tax-deductible gifts go to work immediately and impact every corner of the campus.
